Diurnal variation of spontaneous eye blink rate in the elderly and its relationships with sleepiness and arousal
Systematic temporal variation in the rate of spontaneous eye blinking in human infants.
The rate of spontaneous eye blinking, a putative index of central dopamine activity based on neuropharmacological and clinical research, has been linked to cognitive activity and behavioral state.
In the blink of an eye: the circadian effects on ocular and subjective indices of driver sleepiness
TLDR
The results show subjective sleepiness levels increased over the duration of the task and suggests that the utility of blink indices as a reliable metric for sleepiness are still far from specific.
Diurnal Tracking of Blink and Relationship to Signs and Symptoms of Dry Eye
TLDR
Diurnal change in IBI may be an appropriate surrogate for symptoms in the study of dry eye, and anterior corneal staining showed a small but significant diurnal increase for both normal group and group with dry eyes.

TLDR
The correlation between eye-blink rate and central dopamine activity may also prove clinically useful in selected neuropsychiatric disorders.
Circadian and sleep-related endocrine rhythms in schizophrenia.
TLDR
It is concluded that, in schizophrenic men, pituitary-adrenal function and circadian time-keeping are normal but prolactin secretion is hyperresponsive to the physiologic stimulus of sleep onset, characterized by a subset of neuroendocrine disturbances distinct from that observed in major endogenous depression.
Subjective and objective sleepiness in the active individual.
TLDR
The results support the notion that ambulatory EEG/EOG changes may be used to quantify sleepiness and suggest physiological changes due to sleepiness are not likely to occur until extreme sleepiness is encountered.
Time course of narrow frequency bands in the waking EEG during sleep deprivation.
TLDR
Various NFB in the waking EEG may reflect different physiological mechanisms underlying variations in vigilance states that may reflect both the duration of time awake and a circadian modulation of core body temperature.
Seasonal independence of low prolactin concentration and high spontaneous eye blink rates in unipolar and bipolar II seasonal affective disorder.
TLDR
No significant differences in PRL values or eye blink rates were found between the bipolar II and unipolar forms of SAD in either season and dopamine functioning was discussed in terms of dopamine functioning.
Maintenance of wakefulness test and multiple sleep latency test. Measurement of different abilities in patients with sleep disorders.
TLDR
The data demonstrate that patients with diagnosable disorders of excessive somnolence may be discordant on the two tests and that the MWT may be a useful adjuvant daytime test in many clinical situations.
The free-running circadian rhythms of two schizophrenics.
TLDR
Pulse rate in the schizophrenics followed a rhythm with a period slightly less than that of activity, and in one schizophrenic showed a consistently early phasing, suggesting that schizophrenics may have an abnormally short circadian period.
